Updated timeline for the new integrated view for Gmail

What’s changing 

Earlier this year, we introduced a new, integrated view for Gmail, making it easy to move between critical applications like Gmail, Chat and Meet in one unified location. We’d like to share some additional updates regarding the rollout of this feature.

Beginning today, we are rolling out the opt-out experience to a segment of Gmail users. This means that select users will see the new Gmail experience by default, but they will still have the option to revert to classic Gmail via the settings menu. As we continue to roll out this new experience, the new Gmail view will also continue to be available for users who want to enable it via Quick settings. 

As always, we will carefully monitor and address feedback from users during this rollout period and in the future.

Why it matters 

When enabled, the new navigation menu allows you to easily switch between your inbox, important conversations, and join meetings without having to switch between tabs or open a new window. We hope this new experience makes it easier for you to stay on top of what’s important and get work done faster in a single, focused location. 

We’d like to note that the new experience will vary based on your Google Workspace edition. Specifically, if you only have Gmail, you will continue to have a Gmail-only configuration in the new navigation: 

The new Gmail view for users with Gmail only

Users who use Gmail, Chat and Meet, can specify which apps they would like included in their new view by customizing their apps in quick settings. They also have the option to use a Gmail-only configuration.
